ART & ADS EDITOR
We, theclass ofl 965, dedicate this yearbook to Mr. David
L. Prentiss in appreciation of the sincere effort he has
always given as our class advisor and teacher. We shall
always remember him for the way he made our problems
To the Class of 1965:
Throughout the latter years of your lives you have been made aware of the great
competition we as a nation must face in the world of today . It is to our pride and to
your honor, that you have been prepared to take part in this competition. Yet we
hope you have gained more than factual knowledge for this competition.
As you enter this changing, competitive world, it is our hope that you have gained
a sense of duty and obligation. Many of you will rise to positions of great responsibility.
All of you will be required to make decisions that require sacrifice . When these
events take place, we hope you can remember the meaning of these following lines.
We like to believe they embody the educational goals of Smith Academy. We hope
they also describe your worldly goals.
"Love thyself last; cherish those hearts
that hate thee;
Corruption wins not more than honesty.
Still in thy right hand carry gentle
To silence envious tongues: be just, and
Let all the ends thou aim'st at be thy
Thy God's and truth's; then if thou
fall' st, O Cromwell,
Thou fall'st a blessed martyr. "

This year the Thespian Society put on two successful productions entitled "LOCK, STOCK, AND LIP-
STICK, " and "MEET ME IN ST. LOUIS. " The former, the Senior Play, was put on November 6,
1964 at the Hatfield Town Hall. The comedy in three acts was about the troubles at a school
when a lady guidance counselor comes to a school. The latter was the school play which was
produced May 21, 1965, also at the
Town Hall. This comedy written
by Christopher Sergei was about a
family which was supposed to move
when the World's Fair was about to
start. Stanley Malinowski, Frank
Glenowicz, and Margaret Yangin-
ski were outstanding in both plays as

The 1965 ECHO has been greatly improved and it is hoped that the students and teachers enjoy this
issue of the yearbook. Additions and improvements include colored endsheets, sepiatone throughout
the book, and candids to show both sides of the well-balanced student at Smith Academy, along
with the best paper.
The editors and the staff worked
diligently throughout the year to
raise the money needed and to put
together the yearbook. The staff
wishes to thank Mrs. Spakowski
and all those who helped to make
this edition a success. We would
also like to wish the 1966 staff luck
with their anniversary yearbook.
It will be the ECHO's twenty-fifth
birthday. They will probably

Under the direction of Mrs. Margaret Pruzynski, the school paper staff met in September during the
Activity Period. Various members of the staff were assigned to write articles in the area in which he
wanted to work. The ECHO was published during the Christmas season and Easter, In addition to
these Mrs. Pruzynski started her school paper staff on a new venture this year ... In January a
one page' newspaper called the FALCON FLYER was published once a week, usually Tuesday or
Wednesday. The students preferred this type of newspaper as it not only provided them with the latest
gossip about school at the end when there was room.

Creative Writing Society
The Creative Writing Society accomplished much in its fifth year at Smith Academy
with Stanley Malinowski, President; Helen-Mary Zgrodnik, Vice-President; Marcia
Goclowski, Secretary; Lee Sperry, Treasurer; Kyra Petrick, Narrator.
With its seventeen members it held its annual literature contest. Judges from the
society were David Brennan and Margaret Yanginski. High school judges were Mr.
Moczulewski, and Mr. Savage, Junior high judges were Mr. Naumowicz, and Mrs.
Muller. Prizes were awarded on Class Day, June 16 in groups of three to both the
senior and junior high divisions. Students could enter essays, poems, or short stories.
At the Class Day exercises Mr. Naumowicz awarded pins to ten seniors. The class of
1965 designed these pins for the seniors before them also. The prizes from the contest
were also awarded that day. This was the first year they were not published in the
club magazine, "Anything and Everything. "

You asked for it!
Although the Falcon's fourth place finish
was not an overly impressive one, there
were, as there usually are, outstanding
performances by individual team
Co-captain Bob Symanski at left halfback
made the All Hampshire League first
team, with Bobby Pelis (inside right) and
Bill Hoffman (fullback) receiving honorable
mention. Pelis and freshman Bruce
Malinowski did most of the scoring for
coach "Spike" Nadolny.
The most optimistic note for next year
comes from the fact that Coach Nadolny
will have a goodly number of experienced
players returning, only one of them a
Behind the scenes.
Our Motto — "Work; don't goof off!
"Get that goal!"
Although winning the same number of games as
last year's team and finishing the season with a
3-11 Hampshire League record, Coach Andrews'
Falcon had a very good season in one respect.
Once again the accent was on youth and once
again a very good group of freshman will
probably keep it that way for awhile.
Freshmen Tommy Wickles (at shortstop) and George
Vachula (at second base) did very commendable
jobs both on the field and at the plate and will
more than likely be regular starters next year.
Bruce Malinowski, Vic Lisewski and Rich Burrington
also held their own.
If a replacement can be found for ace pitcher Bob
Burke (this year's and last year's Most Valuable
Player), perhaps things will begin to move next

Hampshire League Champs
It was a real red-letter year for the 1964-65 "Falcon Express. " Anticipated as a weak, rebuilding year
after the loss of four starting seniors from last year's second-place, 13-5 team, it turned out to be
probably Smith Academy's and Coach Max Moczulewski's proudest. The Falcons, picked to finish
third or fourth, rolled over the Hampshire League competition (many games were close, but the
"express" always had that vital reserve power needed to come out on top) and remained undefeated
until their last league game, a very close one, when they were tripped up by a revenge-seeking St.
Michael's team, and ended the season with a 17-1 record. To top off everything, the team went to
the Western Mass. Tournament, losing to Holyoke High by a score of 44-42.
The key to this particular team's success was undoubtedly its balanced attack. The five starters (Bob
Burke, Bob Symanski, Bob Pelis, Bill Hoffman and Frank Glenowicz) all were capable of and had
twenty -point performances. Four of the five finished the season with double-figure averages, and the
other player just missed with 9.2.
The team was in a huddle. The coach was
at the head.

Smith's Future Noise-makers
This year Coach Joseph Savage put together Smith Academy's strongest J. V. team in many years, and
certainly one of the strongest in the past Hampshire League season. Thanks to the consistent high scor-
ing performances of John Yagodzinski and Richie Sliwoski and good play from regulars Alan Prucnal,
John Osley, Dave Puchalski and Chet Skorupski, the junior Falcons beat most of their opponents by
wide margins on their way to a 16-2 record.
A strong junior varsity team such as this one will certainly be a boon to varsity coach Max Moczulew-
ski, who is losing four of his five Hampshire League champion starters to the post-grad world.

Girls' Team Sets New Record
The girls' basketball team did quite well this season with its two new coaches and many new players.
Coach Carolyn Kozera sparked the varsity to a 5-8 record, and Coach Bernadette Pipczynski did a good
job with the unexperienced junior varsity squad.
Both coaches added much spirit to the games and found that the girls were always willing to fight to
the end. Many of the new players especially surprised everyone with their basketball ability.
Marcia Goclowski, Donna Symanski, and Christine Sliwoski were the girls working behind the scenes.
The hopes for an even better team next year are high, since only one player is graduating and the
captain will be editor of the yearbook.

Mullins, and Bonnie Slysz. JV cheerleaders were Sarah
Belden, Marie Bzwil, and Patty Jaworski.

Over the Rainbow
Saturday evening, May 23, 1964 the annual Junior Prom
was held at the Hotel Northampton in the Currier & Ives
Rooms. Multicolored crepe flowers carried out the theme,
"Over the Rainbow. " They were placed around the Queen's
throne. A white picket fence set the throne off from the
dance floor. The music for the evening was provided by
Gus Perfito arid his band. The traditional grand march was
led by Class President Frank Glenowicz and Donna Donnis.
The class voted before the prom that no girl who was queen
before could reign that evening. Members of the band chose
Sandra Baceski as Queen of the prom. Her court was com-
posed of the following girls: Suzanne Yarrows, Jeannette
Backiel, Marcia Goclowski, and Cessie Cybulski. The
prom proved to be an occasion well worth remembering.
Suzy Yarrows and Tony Wendolowski enjoy one of the
coaches in front of the site of the Prom.

The Senior Class left Bradley Field,
Tuesday, April 20, at 10:45 for Wash-
ington National Airport. They were able
to visit such sights as Mount Vernon, the
grave of the late President John F. Ken-
nedy, various Federal buildings, including
the Capitol, and monuments and memo-
rials to past presidents. Dining at the
Casino Royal was one of the special treats.
The Class arrived at the Kennedy Airport
on Thursday. They were able to see the
famous Easter show at Radio City. All of
Friday was spent at the World's Fair. The
Class arrived at Bradley Field at 7:00
Saturday evening. They were accompanied
by Mr. Prentiss.

Where we can seek the truth.

We'll miss the cafeteria

We'll miss the drugstore where we ate
And smoked till half past eight.
Our school is only ninety -six,
Yet looks three times as old as this.
The guidance room still smells cigar,

To keep pace with other yearbooks across the nation, the
editors of the 1965 ECHO decided to include many innova-
tions. These include colored endsheets, fewer division
pages, different lay-outs, metallic printing on the cover,
and more candids of the students and teachers. Candids were
put in the yearbook to show the activities of the students in
and out of classes.
These innovations were made possible through the help and
co-operation of many people. On behalf of the yearbook
staff, I would like to express our appreciation to Mr. Skar-
zynski and the members of the faculty for their aid and
co-operation throughout the year. I am also grateful to all
the students who helped with the solicitation of ads and
the typing of yearbook material. At this time I would like
to acknowledge the hard work and sincere effort of the vari-
ous editors who contributed so much of their time to the
yearbook. Furthermore, I must not forget to mention our
advisor, Mrs. Spakowski for the contribution of her valuable
advice. In conclusion, our sincerest thanks go to the ad-
vertisers without whose financial support this yearbook would
not be possible.
In our yearbook we have tried to illustrate for the community
a picture of Smith Academy during this year. Here we have
tried to depict the students in their times of joy, their times
of sorrow, and their periods of mental anguish. In short, we
have tried to show you the many sides of Smith Academy.
